Hacking in the Rain
Seeing a lampshade like the one above, It strikes me as odd that umbrella lamp shade hacks are so rare – is superstition preventing us from seeing the obvious? Did some browsing and found a couple of other examples where umbrellas have been hacked in various ways – enjoy!
Great look from Melbourne based architects Edwards & Moore.
Grouped for effect
Grouping umbrellas together achieves an instant interesting sculptural effect. The design below is by Chicago-based Steven Haulenbeek, and is made from simple white photographers’ translucent “shoot-through” umbrellas.
